- The Coconut Traveler
Hawaii Opens October 15th
After eight months, our Governor says we're re-opening on October 15th. However, you must have a COVID test with a negative result within 72-hours of arrival. While we begin the process of re-opening and re-discovering restaurants, boutiques, and villas, the urgency to secure accommodations is in full swing. We hope to help you find your perfect home in the islands and develop an itinerary that will create a love for the islands.
Conservation + Preservation
Positive exchange is at the heart of what we do. Whether that's through sustainable, philanthropic, or regenerative opportunities, we find that guests become better aligned with community values and more engaged in the islands by interacting with our local partners.
Caring for Hawaii is made possible by the hands of many volunteers and forward-thinking guests. From our relationships with local farmers for pre-arrival provisions, a Captain whose fee for learning to sail a one-of-a-kind, historic tall ship and enjoying the spectacular Kaneohe sandbar provides funding for an onboard program for at-risk youth, to an experience with a shark behavior expert that continues her research, The Coconut Traveler is focused on tourism as a benefit to the community, environment, and local economy.
Private Guided Experiences
We love our guides and they love what they do; often we envy them! The pandemic wasn't kind to Hawaii visitors, but we watched as many guides packed up their families, headed for the mountains and ocean, and never stopped seeking out new ways to enjoy the islands. Whether you want to learn how to paddle an outrigger canoe, find the bamboo forest, or forest-bathe in it, or challenge yourself on a day hike, we have guides for every interest and ability level.
